Summary
The author believes that instruction in English and the language arts can nurture the process of teaching. He describes four types of thought that are particularly compatible with English and language arts instruction: (1) contextual thinking, (2) thinking that facilitates the construction of meaning, (3) thinking that enhances knowledge development, and (4) thinking that results in higher-order learning. The author maintains that gearing English and language arts instruction to these four types of though requires significant shifts in both the form and function of instruction. At the same time, he says, middle school and secondary teachers can better enhance the natural cognitive processes involved in learning. He shows that the teaching and reinforcing, or cultivation, of thinking has the potential to illuminate the English and language arts content in ways previously not experienced.--
